Where there is a spat between a man and a woman, there always remains the possibility for romance. That is exactly where the relationship between Doug Stamper and Leann Harvey could be headed in “House of Cards” season 5.
‘House of Cards’ Season 4
The only thing missing from Claire Underwood’s life was a blindly loyal right-hand man (or in this case, a right-hand woman) who was willing to do whatever it takes to ensure her win and protect her while doing so.
Frank Underwood always had Doug Stamper to fall back on from the very beginning and season 4 introduced an equally wily “Lady Stamper”, Leann Harvey, who is entirely invested in making Claire’s Presidential campaign a success.
The effort would obviously have to be greater on Leann’s part since Frank is already the reigning President.

There also remains a possibility of a budding romance between Doug and Leann, since they both have similar tastes and personalities. They are equals in every meaning of the term and hence perfect for each other.
There is also a chance that one might manipulate the other to gain trade secrets through the art of seduction, without the other having any clue about it. Their potential romance could also lay grounds for further conspiracies, betrayals, and bloodsheds in the series, making for exciting television.
Whichever direction the next installment of the series decides to head, showrunner Beau Willimon will not be there to see it through. According to E News, this is the official statement released by Netflix:
“Prior to its fourth season premiere, Netflix and MRC are thrilled to announce that House of Cards will return for a fifth season in 2017. Concurrent with the renewal, creator, and showrunner Beau Willimon is departing the critically acclaimed series.
Netflix and MRC owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to Beau Willimon for his strong narrative vision for House of Cards over the show’s first four seasons.”
Willimon thanked the network and everyone involved with the series in a press release and said that “After five years and four seasons, it’s time for me to move on to new endeavors, but I’m supremely proud of what we’ve built together, wish the show much continued success and leave it in the hands of a very capable team.”
